season 5 returns tonight from winter hiatus and, as promised in our preview
for the episode, we've got an interview with one of the guest stars.
In the episode, called "Significant Others," Jack Wagner guest stars as a pro golfer whose career went down in flames after a nasty divorce. He's also a guy who is apparently a suspect in the murder of his divorce attorney.
"A broken man."
"I play a broken man." Wagner told us. "A Broken man whose ex-wife left him and now he's being charged with murder."
Though Wagner is only in one scene in the episode, the previews show us that his character is pretty serious and not being played for laughs. On the role, Wagner said: "I love doing comedy one week, and then getting to play a guy who's very serious the next."
Did the golfer do it? Wagner wouldn't say, but he did tell us whether he thought his character would ever come back to the show. "No, I don't think we'll see my character again. Unless he gets married again and is accused of killing another divorce attorney," Wagner joked.
"Nathan and I started acting like a couple of stupid teenagers."
Wagner said he "had a great time hanging out with Nathan and Stana" on set and they all got along so well that soon "Nathan and I started acting like a couple of stupid teenagers."
Often guest stars jump right into a role without any previous knowledge of the show or what it's about, but agner said he was already a fan of Castle when he got tapped for his guest appearance, remarking that "it's a great show."
Speaking of getting the part, Wagner is perhaps best known for his work on The Bold and The Beautiful and it turns out that his soap training may have helped him get the role on Castle. Apparently knowing how to speed-read your lines is a good thing when going in to read as a guest star.
After tonight's winter premiere of Castle, next up Wagner can be seen in the current season of Hot in Cleveland. He'll also be seen in the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.
Castle airs on Monday nights at 10pm on ABC.
